(Boncelles, Belgium--August 22, 2012) Image Matters, developer of innovative hardware and software tools for extreme imaging applications, has launched I’m XS, a new high-performance video board for OEMs, integrators, and advanced users.

Designed for professional imaging applications, I’m-XS delivers outstanding quality with uncompressed or JPEG2000 images. I’m-XS processes HD and 2K content in real time at up to 60 frames per second.

In addition, I’m XS includes a JPEG2000 processing engine from intoPIX, making it the most valuable choice for production, post-production, distribution and archiving applications, where the preservation of superior image quality is paramount. The advantages of the JPEG2000 format include mathematically lossless compression, constant quality through multiple generations, scalability, low latency and many more.

“Image Matters is dedicated to developing the next wave of image handling technologies for professionals,” said Jean-François Nivart, Image Matters CEO. “The I’m XS board is one of the industry’s first solutions offering cost-effective and conveniently-packed JPEG2000 processing, with Mathematically Lossless capability and all the benefits the format entails for a wide variety of applications.”

Compact enough to easily fit into the current generation of computers, I’m-XS offers two 3G video inputs and two 3G video outputs, and can connect directly to all SD, HD or 2K, single or dual SDI signal sources. I'm-XS is equipped with a PCI Express GEN2 x8 connector enabling fast picture and compressed data stream exchange with a host PC or MAC.

I'm-XS is highly flexible and can be configured for any data flow for a wide range of applications where the ultimate image quality is required.
